Jumpstart Your Nursing Career

Are you studying to become a Registered Nurse (RN) or Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) at a registered post-secondary education institution? Make industry connections and get valuable experience working as a new member of the care team at a Shannex nursing home community. Summer employment is available at all Shannex Enhanced Care locations across Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.

We’ll work with your schedule. Providing the best care for residents starts with great people and we recognize the importance of balancing school, work, life and self-care. The summer is a time for outdoor activities, sunshine and fun. Our team will make a plan that works for you – especially if you’d like to stay with us when classes resume.  

Graduating this year? You may be eligible for a $5,000 tuition reimbursement. Complete the form below to learn more.

You will experience long term care first-hand in a nursing home community managed by Shannex, a family-led organization that started in Nova Scotia more than 30 years ago.  

Every day, residents welcome team members into their homes to do meaningful and fulfilling work. Residents will rely on you to support their independence, happiness, health and wellbeing. You will work alongside other team members as well as experienced healthcare and licensed professionals who are committed to your learning and development.
